Quintonil and Pujol have a lot in common. Not only are they both in Polanco, but the chef at Quintonil also worked at Pujol, and Pujol’s most famous dish (the mole madre that’s been cooking since 2013) was initially made to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Quintonil. Quintonil serves one of the best moles we’ve ever had as well, and the menu has a similar focus to Pujol’s on local ingredients and beautiful presentations. 

They offer a rotating tasting menu for about $215 per person or you can order a la carte, in which case you’ll need to order the crab tostada with habanero mayo and the ant chorizo with creamy, cheesy rice. If you can’t get a dinner reservation, which is difficult because they’re only available two months in advance, then come for one of the best lunches in this city. Or any city.

La Docena is an oyster bar in Roma that’s one of the only places in Mexico City open on Sundays.

Restaurante Nicos review image

Nicos is a drive, but it’s worth the trip for excellent food from a family-owned traditional Mexican spot. Get the enchiladas and duck mole.

El Cardenal review image

Head to El Cardenal in Centro Historico for the best breakfast in the city. Be sure to pair your nata with a concha.

Pujol review image

Fine dining in Mexico City means the tasting menu at Pujol in Polanco. Its pricey and very much worth it.
